With a radical change from painted panels to nailed objects in the 1950s, Gunther Uecker found the medium for his artistic intentions. It quickly became his trademark and made him one of the most significant artists of the era. His sense of the "vulnerability of people through people" eventually led him, in the 1980s, to create visual works and installations that touched upon ever darker and deeper existential questions. This comprehensive monograph, Twenty Chapters, presents choice works from throughout his career, from public and private collections around the world--early drawings, light media, permutations, nailed objects and kinetic work--as well as pieces from his private collection, some of which have never been exhibited.
